Msnmsgr.exe has stopped working

Incompatible .net

 
  Description  
     
 

This program is a .net program type, and is critically dependent on the installed .net components. It may be the program is incompatible with newer versions of .net. You must get a newer version of the program that is compatible with the newer versions of .net.

The Problem Signature 9 of System.InvalidCastException indicates the program failed because an internal conversion bug. For example, a text string was attempted to be used as a number, or a larger number type is being converted to a smaller number type, but the number is too large for the smaller number type.

This may occur from failure to validate input, a design error, or an unexpected value passed to the program.

Most exception errors are the result of a software bug. If the faulting program is identified, check if a newer version is available that corrects the issue.

Be aware that in some cases the fault might lie elsewhere, such as an operating system file, driver or other defective software that is running.

Install the latest Windows software updates. Don't forget to check for non-critical updates too!

To manually get updates, open Internet Explorer (you can't use a non-Microsoft browser for updates).

For IE 8 and later: Click on Safety, then Windows Update. Follow the instructions.


 

For IE 7 and older: Click on Tools, then Windows Update. Follow the instructions.
